i have taken a prolonged break from painting as you all know.. i have engaged in some writing and also a little photography during this time which has sustained my creativity as well as returning to playing some music namely my piano.

To L.. thank you for your encouragement and for suggesting that i post this here in Perugina Art.

_________
Thank You

People come into your life for a reason..

They are sent to you
not because you WANT them..

They come into your life


because you NEED them..

to help you
to leave you
to hurt you
to love you

to make you into the person you are meant to be

to make you strong
when you are weak

to help you up
when you are down

to help you shine
even in the darkest place

to protect you
when you are most vulnerable
to walk with you
when you are alone

to help fix you
when you are broken

thank you for coming into my life
thank you for helping me to become
the person i am
i am a better person
for having known you

to those who have..
walked with me
held my hand
laughed with me
wiped my tears
walked away from me
stayed with me near
thank you for coming into my life
thank you for helping me to become
the person i am
i am a better person
for having known you

to those who have..
helped me up
walked on by
stopped to listen
that did not hear
took some time
to lend an ear
opened their door
closed their heart
thank you for coming into my life
thank you for helping me to become
the person i am
i am a better person
for having known you

to those who have..
been there forever
for only a moment
held my heart
smashed my spirit
taught me to believe
dismissed my dreams
thank you for coming into my life
thank you for helping me to become
the person i am
i am a better person
for having known you

to those who have..
reached out
turned their back
stopped to speak
kissed my lips
slapped my face
invited me to sit
offered no drink
despised me
loved me
thank you for coming into my life
thank you for helping me to become
the person i am
i am a better person
for having known you

to those who have..
touched my life
in any way
hear me
for I thank you now

to those who are still to come
i bid you welcome
help me to become
the person i will be
for i will be a better person
for having known you
con gratitudine
sempre dal cuore

Non so perchè, ma le tue belle parole hanno per il mio cuore, un velato sapore di tristezza, un pò come quando si deve salutare una persona cara che se ne va. Però, le tue parole, sanno anche dare la speranza che altri amici, ancora sconosciuti, potrannno arrivare e troveranno sempre la porta aperta.
E' bello venirti a trovare sul tuo blog!!
